Seven years after the project was announced, the Marriott Group hotel brand will open its first property in Scotland, the W Edinburgh, from mid-November 2023.
Originally unveiled in 2016 under the former Starwood Hotels brand (prior to its merger with Marriott), the W Edinburgh is an integral part of the St James district in Edinburgh's East End, a thriving international shopping center. This mixed-use complex is also home to a Roomzzz-branded apartment hotel.
The hotel's exterior is distinguished by its spiral ribbon. It features 199 rooms and 45 suites, some with outdoor terraces. It offers a rooftop restaurant, created by Japanese-Brazilian-Peruvian fusion cuisine brand SUSHISAMBA, a Joao's Place cocktail bar and the W Lounge. Wellness facilities include a fitness center and spa.
The W Edinburgh is the second W Hotels property in the UK, following the W London, which debuted in 2011. It joins Marriott Bonvoy's portfolio of 31 brands. This launch follows closely on the heels of the Virgin Hotels brand's entry into the Scottish market last year.
This property will become an exceptional hotel, unlike any other in the city, arousing the curiosity of guests and attracting locals with the distinctive and unrivalled energy of the W brand." - Agnieszka Rog-Skrzyniarz, Vice President, Luxury Brands Europe, Marriott International.
